    Unanswered: Alternate values for alias of SUM

    SO, I want to sum up a column of values, give it an alias and if it's less than 100 return the true value. But if the sum is equal to or greater than 100 I want the alias to return a fixed 100.

    I'm a bit rusty and don't quite know where to start and would really value an example.

    Thanks
